Apple has reduced the production and orders for spare parts for the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus as demand for both iPhones are falling. The decline is mainly the result of rumors about the new iPhone 8 that will appear in 2017.
For months, rumors are floating about the successor to the current iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. There have been continuous reports about revolutionary iPhone 8, with which Apple will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the iPhone next year. These speculations have caused a reduction in the demand for the current iPhones.
Apple introduced the Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in September this year. Both devices were sold very well initially, thanks to the new and popular Jet Black version and also to the disaster that Samsung had with its Samsung Galaxy Note 7.
Especially in China
Although Apple was hugely benefited from the momentum initially, there is already a visible reduction in the demand for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Especially in China, demand for both units fell sharply. Apple has already commissioned its assembly companies to reduce the production capacity. In addition, the tech giant has also reduced its orders for spare parts for the devices.
Curved display & 3D cameras
The new iPhone model for 2017 is expected to come with an AMOLED display which may even be curved over the edges of the device. Furthermore, there are also hints some iPhone models will have a larger screen with the ability to bend the screen over the edges. There also might be advanced 3D cameras into some models.
